Electronics Recycling Day Update

By | May 12, 2013

Montrose Management District collected 8,800 pounds of waste at the District’s free public recycling day on Saturday, April 27, 2013 held at HEB’s West Alabama location.

The District collected 6,000 pounds of paper and documents, as well as 2,800 lbs of electronic and computer parts for safe, environmentally-friendly disposal. The event attracted approximately 150 Houstonians.

“The Montrose Management District team is excited by the success of this event,” said Montrose Recycling Committee Chair, Diane Baker. “Baker stated that the Board of Directors of the District is  continually striving to serve the community and Houston as a whole, by maintaining and improving quality of life.”

HEB, Tradition Bank, the City of Houston Solid Waste Division, CompuCyle and Interstate Batteries all partnered with the District to make this event a huge success. Students from Saint Thomas University and other volunteers supported event logistics and were tasked with unloading vehicles and traffic control.

Montrose Management District will host a second recycling event later this year, scheduled to take place on October 26, 2013 at the same location. Look for event details on the website and Facebook!
